Quantified modal logic and possible world semantics: a uniform approach

Quantified modal logic and possible world semantics: a uniform approach. The main theme of quantified modal logic is the interplay between modalities (alethic, temporal, etc) and quantification. Combining expressions like "it is possible that", "it is...
